how do i convert a mass in kilograms to a weight in kgf??(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

should it not just be the same value?? is that not the idea of kgf??

for a weight on earth

if F=mg---> N=kg*9.8

and i know that

9.8N=1kgf

therefore

9.8N=9.8^{2}kg

giving me 1kgf=9.8^{2}Kg

this doesnt seem right to me,

can someone please explain it, thanks
